The Hitler-praising rapper posted the bizarre rant on Sunday after Musk told a Twitter Spaces livestream he “wanted to punch” Ye for posting a swastika on Twitter, which led to his suspension from the social media site.
On Instagram, where he still has an active account, Ye posited that the South Africa-born Musk could be “half Chinese,” also roping former President Barack Obama into his eugenics-themed tirade.
“Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African super model and we have an Elon,” Ye wrote, originally in all caps.
He continued: “I say an Elon because they probably made 10 to 30 Elon’s [sic] and he’s the first genetic hybrid that stuck.”
The rapper later addressed Musk’s response to his oddball theory and said he meant it as a “compliment.”
Ye’s shots at Musk come after more than two months of hate that have included his showcasing of “White Lives Matter” shirts, threatening to go “death con 3” on Jewish people, and most recently expressing admiration for Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
The rapper ― who recently dined with former President Donald Trump and white supremacist Nick Fuentes ― hopes to become president in 2024, although far-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos, who joined Ye’s campaign in November, reportedly got the boot from the campaign after a rift between him and Fuentes.
